SKAMpede ASL Tours in text and fingerspelling

ASL (American Sign Language) Interpreted performances are a way of making shows accessible to patrons who are Deaf or hard of hearing. The ASL Interpreter stands to the side of the stage to interpret the spoken (or sung) parts of a performance. Theatre SKAM is fortunate to have a partnership with Island Deaf and Hard of Hearing, who has sponsored our ASL Interpreter.
